Photogrammetry and LiDAR

Increase your knowledge on your territories through the processing of aerial data with remarkably high accuracy – aerial imagery up to 5cm ground sampling distance (GSD) and LiDAR up to 20 points per m².

Increase the knowledge of your territories with photogrammetry and LiDAR

Photogrammetry is a technique that enables the modeling of a territory from photographs (in this case aerial imagery) taken from different points of view. This technique not only enables the surveying of large study areas, but also the production of the detailed cartography required for land use planning, field monitoring, and diagnostic studies.

The classification of LiDAR data allows a very precise topographic survey over large areas, including information on your soils, a complete inventory of the over-ground (built-up area), and a very fine analysis on the different vegetation strata.

The cartographic products resulting from photogrammetry and aerial LiDAR processing not only offer a better understanding of the territory, serving various public policies such as agriculture, forestry, and risk management, but also define repositories to improve the geographical accuracy of network operator plans, ultimately supporting the optimization of decision-making policies and tackling the corresponding societal challenges.

Develop Cartographic
Repositories

Raster backgrounds and digital terrain model (DTM) repositories need to be produced from very high resolution aerial imagery and LiDAR data.

Risk
Prevention

A precise DTM allows, for example, the production of watershed models that can be used to develop scenarios for flood risk prevention.

Awareness of
Forest Resources

LiDAR data allow the classification of your soils, surfaces, and vegetation, especially with regard to the different layers of forest canopy, providing increased insight and awareness on your forest resources.

Our Approach in Photogrammetry and LiDAR

We provide aerial mapping services and products to our customers by leveraging very high resolution aerial imagery and LiDAR technology. Our team of photogrammetric technicians, passionate about digital mapping, is committed to provide you with the most effective solutions that meet your project requirements and deadlines.

Avineon assists in defining your photogrammetric needs and covers the entire range of photogrammetric services, from acquisition (through our reliable partners), over stereo-compilation and aerotriangulation, to the delivery of end products (e.g., DTM, DSM, orthophotos, etc.). Our services are mainly directed at network operators and government agencies but can be extended to other industries and clients who can benefit from aerial surveying and the post-processing of the aerial-captured data.

Design

To begin your organization’s photogrammetric or LiDAR data journey on the right foot, a thorough understanding of your requirements and the state-of-the art technology in the market is required. The Avineon team works with you to understand your requirements and translate those into specifications for a LiDAR or photogrammetric campaign in line with best industry practices.

Aerotriangulation

In an automated production, the digital aerial triangulation (AT) is divided into several processing steps, which include data preparation (photos and control points), automatic data import and image compression, automatic interior orientation, automatic AT measurements, GPS supported bundle block adjustment, and quality control.

 

Our specialized photogrammetry staff has the required expertise and tools to process your raw images and make them available for the next step towards the end product.

Implement

Our photogrammetry team will manage your project to obtain qualitative and timely acquisition and production of the required end-products, based on LiDAR point clouds and/or aerial images.

DTM/DSM Production

The availability of accurate digital terrain models (DTM) and digital surface models (DSM) become more and more crucial for various applications.

 

Our staff is perfectly qualified to generate these models in line with your requirements and needs.

Orthophoto Creation

The creation of qualitative, high resolution orthophotos requires expertise and experience. Our team is capable to perform this task and masters all aspects of this process down to the last detail.

LiDAR Point Cloud Classification

Raw LiDAR points need to be classified into a number of categories including, for example, bare earth or ground, top of canopy, and water. The semi-automatic process is a laborious task which requires a special eye for detail.

 

Our LiDAR technicians are trained to execute this task in a very efficient way and with a high level of accuracy.
